Foodbank is Australia’s largest food relief organisation, operating on a scale that makes it crucial to the work of the front line charities who are feeding vulnerable Australians. In 2017 Foodbank was awarded Australian Government funding for the installation of solar PV systems across a number of its distribution centres nation wide. AER was selected by Foodbank WA to design and install the system at their Perth Airport headquarters. This required the engagement and support of a range of stakeholders including Perth Airport Pty Ltd, who supported the project through the connection approval process of the 100 kW system. In mid 2019, Foodbank contracted AER to install additional solar generation at it’s Geraldton distribution centre and a new 30 kW system at its Kalgoorlie distribution centre.
